Sen. Blumenthal: Obama's Nuke Deal Lacks Specificity, Raises Questions

By    |   Sunday, 12 Apr 2015 05:24 PM

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, on Sunday blasted President Barack Obama's framework agreement on Iran's nuclear program, saying it lacks specifics on how it will be enforced or verified or inspected.

Appearing on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York,  Blumenthal said "there are as many questions about this so-called understanding as there are answers."

Story continues below.


Blumenthal is among a number of Democrats joining Republicans in saying Congress has a role to play in any final deal. He told host John Catsimatidis he is supporting the bipartisan Corker-Menendez bill requiring congressional approval.

"The more we see of it, the less there seems to be agreement on," Blumenthal said. "The Ayatollah Khamenei is saying that the sanctions will be lifted as soon as the agreement is signed. The president says it will be only when it’s implemented – maybe a year afterward."

Any agreement, any law, is worthless unless it’s strictly and vigilantly enforced, Blumenthal said. "I think there are as many questions about this so-called understanding as there are answers."
